Don’t Rush into Your First Mortgage

I found out I was approved for the house of my dreams, but when I sat down and looked at the mortgage payments and how much I earned, I realized that my lifestyle would change a lot. I started to look for apartments in Far North Dallas because I wanted to make sure that I had a backup in case I did not want to move into the house I was in love with. I also realized that with an acre of property I was going to have to pay someone to maintain it for me because I did not have the time or the care to take care of a lawn. There is at least a few hours a week spent mowing the lawn and that is not something that I wanted to make the time for. When I am home from work, I want to just pop open a bottle of wine and sit and watch TV or out on my patio and watch the world go by. I want to just relax and not have to worry about anything.

The more I sat and thought about the money and the change in lifestyle, the more I realized that I was no longer interested in buying the house. I found a really nice apartment with a great pool where I can unwind after a long day at work. The walk in closet is one of the best that I have ever seen and I am so happy that I found the corner unit. I have two patio spaces on either side of my dining room which is on the corner and I can go out and get sun whenever I want to. This is the best of both worlds and I am so excited for the chance to enjoy my life in the city.
